It was all going too well my training for HM until i got a cold, pulled a muscle and went on an adventure to CR.
As I am sat in my bed looking at the pitch black sky, reading some of your wonderful posts and thinking i am so glad i didn't enter that hm as 15km will be enough of a challenge!!
How naive i was packing my running gear - i will just go for a 15km run i even said on one of my post. How comical that was!!! On my adventure I have learnt several things -
1) I will never complain about hills or inclines again!! There are hills and there are HILLS and INCLINES that will make most runners hide underneath the sofa.
2) Humidity is not a runners friend!! I am so thankful its just hot and dry where i live.
3) Treadmills are not all made equally.
So on my 2 week break I managed 2 very ugly 5km runs and one gym session that was pure boredom hell!! Having said all of that as i look at the little map on my garmin I am pleased i managed to do 1 run.
Yesterday, I faced my gym and it was good to back into the swing of things. This morning I face my normal running route, i am just going to run and see how i go. The holiday pounds will no doubt slow me down but i wouldn't change a thing as its all great fun and experience.
